See photographs of our 21st aniversary event in the 'celebration event' page.
Our mission is to provide the opportunity for people with wood craft interests & skills to meet & benefit from contact with other people with similar interests.
With this mission in mind the committee which is headed by our president, annually sets a programme within the group to include demonstations at our headquarters to promote the art of woodturning and associcated wood crafts. We have a strong membership who attend these organised demonstrations where we have a gallery and a library to encourage further development of members knowledge and to inspire them to progress and show off their new founded talents.
We are open to new members of all ages and gender, whether you are a beginner or returning to woodturning. We are very keen to attract youngsters as we recognize them as being the woodturners of the future. We like to believe we have a family atmosphere within the club, this appears to be apparent when we hold our social evening, where members bring their families along to enjoy a good night.
We meet the 1st Thursday of most months at our headquarters, however with our development and training programme we can offer 1 to 1 training with a specific mentor. please see development and training programme. Members are constantly notified of the clubs activities by means of our regular newsletter and via our club noticeboard at our meetings. Our facilities we offer for demonstrations we feel are good, with tiered seating arrangement and camera's to view very close up on the place of work, this is supported by a sound system and lighting. We have our own lathe (Maxi1) with all the associated equipment.
